Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria on Thursday claimed that his life was in danger over his recent remarks directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In a press conference on Thursday, he made the remark, before shedding more light into it during an interview on Citizen TV later in the evening.

He said that the group has been calling him and threatening to eliminate him as was the case with former Nyandarua lawmaker and Assistant Cabinet Minister JM Kariuki who was assassinated on March 2, 1975.

"I have been receiving all sorts of funny calls people telling me that I will end up like JM Kariuki," he claimed.

However, he rubbished the threats as attempts by political opportunists to take him down.

The firebrand parliamentarian noted that he has since shared the information with the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI).

"These are mischievous people taking the opportunity to settle scores. However, I have shared the information with the DCI for investigations," he added.

This follows his recent remarks suggesting that President Uhuru Kenyatta has failed his Central Kenya region in his development agenda.

The latter has since found himself on the receiving end from pro-Uhuru politicians who are accusing him of disrespecting the President.
